In Jeff’s best-selling book, The Best Tennis of Your Life, and audio program, Fearless Tennis and through his direct coaching, he has helped thousands of athletes and professionals experience similar breakthroughs.

-Jim Loehr

Ed.D. CEO Human Performance Institute

"This course really helped me stay focused in big matches. I would not have been able to beat two players I had previously lost to without the techniques in this program. I was able to think about playing the ball and not focus on the score, which helped me play loose and play my best when it counted most."

-Caroline Pozo

"Jeff’s focus course helped me stay positive and feel more in control. Now when my mind wanders I am able to refocus it on the task at hand quickly. Understanding that our thoughts create our feelings and behavior has helped me focus on what is relevant and I am winning more than ever."
